Curious About Covid Symptoms? You’re not alone. Many people all over the world are wondering the same thing.
Normally, exhibiting the symptoms of cold and flu wouldn’t be so stressful. However, given the current circumstances with the covid-19 global pandemic, these typical symptoms can be indication that you have gotten infected with the virus.
So, what are the symptoms? While symptoms can vary in everyone, the 3 that seem to be the most common are as follows and they can appear 2-14 days after exposure:
Coughing – it’s usually a dry cough, which is new and persistent.
Fever – anything over 99 degrees should be cause for concern.
Headache – if you’re not prone to headaches, this may be a sign of the virus.
Now just because you have these symptoms doesn’t mean you have Covid-19. Remember, there are other viruses out there that you can get which make you feel very similar symptoms. However, to be on the safe side, you should make arrangements to get yourself tested (if possible). We know some areas of the globe are struggling to make testing available to its citizens. Please contact the people responsible for this in your country/city, and make arrangements for testing as soon as possible.
It’s important that we all work together to contain the spread of covid-19. It’s easy to become complacent in these situations, or to assume that everyone is making too big of a deal of it, but this is a very dangerous virus and the numbers prove it.

Please remember to wash your hands regularly while we all get through this pandemic together. It is the best way to prevent getting the virus, since hand washing will kill any germs that may be lingering. Also, as difficult as it is, please refrain from touching your face – this is a sure way for germs to travel from your hands to your face, and that makes for easy entry into your nose, eyes and mouth.
